England’s Euro 2020 group games at Wembley Stadium will be the first sporting event at which vaccine passports will be used in the UK.

UK-based ticket holders must show proof of full vaccination, with both doses having been received at least 14 days before the match.

Those not fully vaccinated must show proof of a negative lateral flow test taken within the previous 48 hours.

England play Croatia in their opening group game on Sunday.

Ticket holders for matches taking place at Hampden Park will not be required to show proof of vaccination or a negative Covid-19 test.

Fans who live in England attending games at Wembley must show their vaccination status via the NHS app.

Wembley will host a maximum of 22,500 fans – 25% of its capacity – for England’s group D fixtures against Croatia, Scotland and Czech Republic.

The stadium is also due to host a last-16 tie as well as both semi-finals and the final.
